I have a windows 2003 A/D domain that I want to add a Win2008 server to and make it an A/D domain controller.  I'm looking for general steps to complete this task.  Also looking for any things I should take into consideration that might be counter productive to the domain.

Ensure that you have a very god backup of the 2003 server before commencing the changes, It is also advisable to check your Active Directory for and remove unncessary users etc.
